More Than A Dozen Pet Names Inspired By Food

Over the years, we came up with some interesting names for our pets, to say the least.

 My Dad had a rule, none of our pets could be named after a human.  Their name had to be a fictional character, an adjective, an object or a place.

When I became an adult, I carried on this tradition of pet naming criteria, my favorite are those inspired by nature.   It seems this tradition has  rubbed off on my children as well!  My one child is drawn to naming pets after their favorite snacks or food.

So in honor of my wonderful childhood memories and my amazing children, I'm sharing a few pet names!  You guessed it, of course they are food related!

Meet Mr. G, my long haired orange tabby cat.  Mr. G is one of the sweetest felines I have been blessed with in my life.   Because of his sweetness, I decided he was the perfect kitty to spotlight for these five quotes for cat lovers.

 To give you a little history,  Mr. G was born on our property by a mama cat, who had been dumped.  Mr. G and his mama (Ms. S) still reside with us today, along with his brother (Mr. C) and another female (Ms. S1).

 They have all been spayed/neutered,  in case you are wondering!

They have the option to roam 3 acres of wooded property, catch some rays on the sun deck or lounge indoors with access to cat beds and toys, in a climate controlled environment.   Nothing but the best for these sweet little fur babies ❤
